Introducing 1Password Advanced Protection: powerful security tools for business

Jeff Shiner by Jeff Shiner on

Today, I’m excited to announce the release of 1Password Advanced Protection, a suite of powerful new security tools for 1Password Business.

With 1Password Advanced Protection, administrators have the power to create security policies, prevent threats, and monitor their team’s access. We’ve got five features to cover, so let’s get started.

Master Password policy

Employee passwords are the biggest point of failure for most companies. With the Master Password policy, administrators can enforce stricter Master Password requirements to match their internal security policies.

You can increase the minimum length, and require uppercase or lowercase letters, numbers, or symbols. When you update your policy, everyone on your team needs to meet those requirements when they create a new Master Password.

Two-factor authentication

Ever since we released two-factor authentication, administrators have asked us for the ability to manage it for their entire team. So we made it happen.

Choose which second factors your team can use when they sign in on a new device: an authenticator app, security keys, or Duo. Then enforce two-factor authentication for your entire team to make sure no one slips through the cracks.

Firewall rules

If you’ve ever wanted to restrict where your team can access 1Password, you’ll love this. You can create firewall rules to allow, report, or deny sign-in attempts from certain locations or IP addresses.

Whether you want to limit access to the office or block access from high-risk countries, you can create firewall rules to help you. You can even block VPNs and Tor to prevent anonymous IP access.

Modern app requirements

For the latest features and security fixes, we know how important it is to keep your software up to date. With modern app requirements, you can make sure your employees are on the same page.

Find out who uses outdated 1Password apps, and require everyone to keep 1Password up to date. If anyone uses an older version of 1Password, they’ll be prompted to update to the latest release.

attempts report

The final feature ties everything together. For more insight into account activity, the sign-in attempts report gives you a clear overview of recently reported, blocked, and failed sign-in attempts.

Review the time, location, IP address, and device of each sign-in attempt, and use the interactive map to view attempts from a specific location. Find out why they failed – whether they used the wrong credentials, two-factor authentication failed, or were blocked by your firewall rules – so you can assess how effective your policies are and adjust them to protect your team.
